COMMUNITY VOTING FOR THE 2020 LEVITT AMP OCALA OPEN THROUGH NOV. 20
The Marion Cultural Alliance (MCA), in partnership with the City of Ocala, is in the running for a fourth year to bring a 10-week live music series to Ocala in 2020.
Sponsored by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a national foundation dedicated to strengthening the social fabric of America through free live music, MCA and the City of Ocala hope to qualify as one of 15 winning organizations competing in the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards.
The Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards is an exciting matching grant opportunity created by the Levitt Foundation to serve small to mid-sized towns and cities with populations up to 400,000. Grant recipients will each be awarded $25,000 in matching funds to produce their own Levitt AMP Music Series—a free, outdoor concert series featuring a diverse lineup of professional musicians.
The proposed venue site for the 2020 series is historic Webb Field at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Complex located at 1510 NE Fourth St. The City of Ocala and MCA’s proposal can be viewed on the Levitt Foundation’s website, www.levittamp.org.
Online public voting for the 2020 Levitt AMP [Your City] Music Series is open now through Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. The top 25 finalists following the online public voting will advance to the next stage in the grant awarding process. The Levitt Foundation will review the proposals of those 25 finalists and announce the winners on Friday, Dec. 20, 2019.
A successful public voting campaign for Ocala depends on community participation to get as many online votes as possible to bring the concert series to town. Community support, as measured by the number of online votes received, will be a key factor when the Levitt Foundation determines the 2020 Levitt AMP Grant Award winners.
